Every year, one of Julie’s twin daughters gets us a delivery of an English High Tea as a Christmas gift. With all the eating and socialising over Christmas, we always choose to have this delivered later, in this case, today.
Piglet’s Pantry is a very reliable company, delivering on time, and everything freshly made and very well-packaged. We are actually going to have this for our evening meal later, as Julie was at work when it was delivered.
This version of a High Tea does away with sandwiches, which is fine in my book. We get Sausage Rolls in two varieties, an indiviual Quiche each, and two delicious hand-made Scotch Eggs. The sweet stuff comprises four delicious bar cakes in assorted flavours, and a Fruit Scone each, accompained by clotted cream and jam. To round it off, they supply two tea bags of their own special blend.
Julie is having a mini-bottle of Prosecco with hers, and I will be on red wine as usual.
Our special tiered tea plate comes out for the occasion, and this is what it all looks like.
